Delaware: House Passes Gun Control Legislation to the Senate

Today, the Delaware House passed gun control legislation, House Bill 63, by a 22 to 19 vote.  HB 63 now heads to the Senate for further consideration.  Please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 63 when it comes up for a vote.


House Bill 63 amends the current law on access to firearms to create a blanket prohibition from having a firearm unsecured and unavailable for use if it is potentially accessible by an “unauthorized person.”  This mandatory storage law would do nothing more than render firearms useless in self-defense situations.  Criminals love this bill as it tips the scales in their favor in self-defense situations.  Further, this legislation seeks to place the blame on law-abiding gun owners for the potential criminal actions of others.

Again, please contact your state Senator and urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 63 when it comes up for a vote.
